Wanda Sykes

Sykes comes in with something most of the people on this list don't have: experience in late night. The comedienne hosted her own post-primetime talk show, The Wanda Sykes Show, from 2009-2010 and became a mainstream favorite in films like Monster-in-Law, Evan Almighty and Rio. Sykes would bring a much-needed dose of feminine energy, and sass, to the Late Show.
